Public Network Maintenance – Monday, January 12th

This post aims to inform our clients, currently hosting their websites on our Shared Hosting infrastructure. We would like to inform our clients about the upcoming semi-emergency maintenance to be performed.

Reasons for the Maintenance

This maintenance will be conducted to upgrade the software on our core networking infrastructure, addressing a confirmed bug with our network hardware manufacturer and eliminating any future impacts this bug may cause. There will be a disruption of servers while traffic is migrated between core systems, of about 30 to 60 seconds.

Event Date(s): Monday, January 12th, 2015 from 2:00am until 6:00am CDT (GMT-5)
Impact: Up to a 60-second interruption on Public network access

Despite the fact that the expected disruption will be less than a minute, please consider this even in case you are using third-party monitoring systems, that may report your websites temporary inaccessible.

Last but not least, we would like to thank you for your understanding on this matter!
